de Lisle Custom Shop Amplifiers
• The de Lisle “Squirrel Nut Zippers” 2×15 Combo
Founding member Jimbo Mathus had us build a one-off 2×15 combo inspired by antique radios. It features a pine cab with a mahogany facia and 50W of power from a tweed Bassman style circuit. Loaded with a pair of Weber 15150A speakers. Full-length concert below:
• The de Lisle “5F11” with 1×15 Extension
A fairly straightforward recreation of the original. Push-pull tone control bypass. Bias adjustments on the rear panel along with an impedance selector and footswitch jack. Mercury Magnetics transformers and Sozo caps were used by request.
• The de Lisle “’59 Bassman” Style with 2×10 Extension
A low watt version of the 5F6A circuit that incorporates our VarioDyne power contorl. Output is linearly variable from <1W to ~20W. We converted the layout to star grounding.
• The de Lisle “‘5E3 Deluxe” Style
Turret board construction, push-pull tone control bypass, star grounding and our VarioDyne circuit. We also added a switch to simulate 5Y3 and GZ34 rectifiers.
• The de Lisle Quadralux Reverb with 1×12 Extension
This amp was commissioned by Tim Baxter of The Gretsch Pages. It’s four amps in one; tweed 5E3 Deluxe, tweed 5F11 Vibrolux, Princeton Reverb and a variation of our Rutgers. Channel switching is accomplished via push-pull knob on the front. Bias method is switchable on the back panel. A Celestion Century Vintage is housed in the extension cab. Now Available Here!
